Sometimes we receive odd fabric as part of a donation. It may work for clothing, but not so great for binkies, unless you think outside the blanket!
We received a large roll of black, stretchy, tube fabric – about 30 inches wide. What do to with THAT?!
BINKY BAGS. I thought about how nice it is to have an easy to store and use sleeping bag. I put two tubes together and sewed their ends. Then, I reached in and pulled it through like a pillow case or duvet cover to create a double layer of the tube.
Next, I evened up the top and cut a 6" slit at one side to make it easier to trim.
I sewed the two ends together to hold it as one piece.
I still have some amazing HOFFMAN FABRIC Batiks. I used a magenta, black and lavender cotton batik.
8 in strip with a one inch fold down ironed.
Then, I pinned it around the top folding over the inside and outside of the bag top and sewed.
It trimmed the top beautifully giving it a spark of personality. I used a scrap to tie a bow around it and now I have a perfect gift for a church in New Mexico collecting blankets and coats.
